We still don’t know what Paul Giamatti’s Rhino suit will look like in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, although the pre-CGI photos we saw earlier this year gave us a little idea. In a new interview with Toronto Sun, Giamatti talked a bit about his character and what fans could expect from the suit. Here’s what he had to say:
In the comic books of old, he had this suit on that made him look like a rhinoceros, and it made him super strong. If there was a bank vault he would just run right through it. Butt through it with his head. And he was not very smart.
And I have a particular kind of suit, but I don’t think I’m supposed to talk about it. He’s a Russian mobster. Russians are always good villains. I have an ability to just destroy things. My accent is pretty hammy. I loved doing it. it seemed to me like an opportunity to be as over-the-top hammy as possible. It was really fun.
With a new trailer rumored to be coming out in the next month or so, do you think we’re close to getting our first look at Paul Giamatti as Rhino?
